Springtime HVAC Maintenance Tips Every Homeowner Needs to Know

If you are a new homeowner, or if you need a quick reminder, spring is a preferred period of time to complete a preventative maintenance plan for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

Here is a shortlist of required Springtime HVAC Maintenance tasks that will keep your system running efficiently for many years.

Find a replacement filter of the proper size in hardware or home improvement stores; a filter rated MERV 11 is a good high-efficiency pleated filter. Replacement is as simple as sliding the old filter out, sliding the new filter in, and disposing of the old filter.
